Hi everyone, let's introduce myself.. my name is Cédric Lavanche, i'm 3D animator and this is my first attempt here, i hope to finish it :)


My idea...:lightbulb the story occurs in a fantasy world where living small bugs ( i don't know the name of the race for the moment... :blush: ). This bugs lived in a small village lost in the "magic" forest... but one day the village was destroyed but their enemy... The war was terrible and only 3 bugs to escape the masssacre cuz' they drive out to find some foods. When they discover them village, they decided to find a another place to create a new village...

I hope you will like my idea...

Good luck everybody :thumbsup:

My first step with the composition...
On the image we will see the first bug on the left walking, the second driving the big mounting (probably looks like the "pétaure" of Lanfeust) and the last is crying on the head of the mounting...

In the background we will see the burning village.. finaly they don't live in the forest... cuz' i hate painting tree ;)

Hope u like it

I like your character design and concept. Its cute and innovative.
By your description alone i can already see the finished peice.
I've subscribed so i dont miss out on the action in this thread.


A snail hmm? Sounds like a good idea, by the look of your sketch i was thinking along the lines of like some weird dung beetle or something. But to keep the humorus, almost childish look to it. I think a snail is perfect.
Good luck

paperclip
03-02-2006, 11:55 PM
I would love to see a dung beetle 'for the mounting!' :D

I really like your concept for the driver, it's a strong design. I think your background could be a bit more epic though. :)

This is the evolution of the walker's design... hope u will like it...

I forget to say thats.. for the design of the first character i was really inspired by osgiliath (http://www.creationsuisse.com/jonathan/site/) but i little to much... the goal was not to "steal" the design of osgiliath so i will change the character of the driver to avoid some others problems...

Poonks
03-03-2006, 08:51 AM
Zapan--> a snail it's a great idea no?? muahahahahahaahahaha... and i will call it Zap'man...:scream:

Kahlan Amnell--> nice to see thats you like the idea... wait and see.. :rolleyes:

paperclip--> hey hey it's a chance thats you like the driver because i will change the driver :sad:

Climax--> nice to meet you too :thumbsup: i will keep an eye on your work...

rblitz7--> tks u

Zapan
03-03-2006, 09:12 AM

Hey Poonks.

I really enjoyed your new secondary sketch.
Just looking at it made me laugh. I can truely see the comedic side to this peice.
Cant wait to see some color WIP's

My advice... I like your snail idea, I'm with you on that. But draw out both of them anyway and lets see what you come up with. You never know, it may sway your mind.

Excellent.
Définie encore mieu les membres, le dos, que tu puisse ensuite le mettre dans toutes le postition voulu. La, j'ai un peu l'impression que tu ne sais pas trop comment changer sa postition. Amuse toi avec ce personnage. Fait le vivre, donne lui des expressions.

Continue :)

Well hello Poonks.

An interesting image youre making here, however, I dont know if it is your purpose, but when iI look at your recent made sky, the form of the colors remind me of looking an "oil on canvas" image. Thats a good thing for me but i would recommend if you do the same with the clouds, that at this point seem to be "over the image". I expect to see more work. Good luck on you first challenge. Its also my first.

Hello again Poonks.

I see you`ve been working. Quite a demonstration that mountain of yours, its a great piece. I supose that after this, you`ll be able to get past your struggle with photoshop. I think all of us are constantly learning. Hope to see that level of work in the snail and bug chatacters.

Really a good work.

Read you later.

So they decided to find a another place where they could create a new village and start a new life... The journey begins..

I would to thanks everybody who followed this WIP, your supports was a real help for me...
